Petaloo Color Me Crazy & Ranger Ink ~ Mini Wreath
When I saw the Petaloo Color Me Crazy Chipboard Fairies (1581-004) I knew I had to make a little something for my nieces to hang in their room. So I decided on a door hanger. I tore two long strips of natural muslin and wrapped them around a 3″ Styrofoam wreath until the entire wreath was covered. I then attached the end of the muslin to the back of the wreath using fabric adhesive.
Next, I wanted to add just a little wording here and there on the muslin so I inked my Perfumery stamp with Archival Ink ~ Coffee and randomly stamped the words here and there around the wreath. I didn’t use an acrylic block to stamp the words. I just held the stamp with two fingers and rolled the stamp onto the muslin. I like the you get when doing this as the stamped image ends up looking more random this way.
I picked flowers from the Mulberry Flowers Mini Canterbury Assortment (1575-000) and the Cotton Paper Flowers Med/Minis (1533-000) and colored them using Dylusions Ink Spray in Calypso Teal, Lemon Zest and Bubblegum Pink. Once the flowers dried I applied a small amount of Diamond Stickles to the center of the Calypso Teal and Bubblegum Pink flowers.
I altered the Color Me Crazy Chipboard Fairy (1581-004) using Tim Holtz Adirondack Color Wash ~ Butterscotch and Perfect Pearls Mist ~ Biscotti. Once the sprays dried I applied a light coat of Diamond Stickles on top of the wings.
Using fabric adhesive I then attached the flowers and fairy to the wreath, creating a 3D collage style grouping. To finish the collage arrangement I placed several Maya Road Green Leaf Trinket Pins among the Color Me Crazy flowers.
Tomorrow, the tutorial to recreate the project below will be featured on the Petaloo Blog. Make sure you check it out. Today, I’ll leave you with a few sneak peeks.
